La Strada in Rehearsal
We are so excited to be co-producing La Strada with Kenny Wax Ltd, Cambridge Arts Theatre and Bristol Old Vic and even more so now that we have seen the rehearsals in full swing! Full of energy and sparkle, La Strada is set to be a dazzling show! We thought we would let you have a sneaky peak at the rehearsal photos ahead of the cast coming to the Belgrade.
We journey into the heart of the Italian countryside where Gelsomina, full of the innocent spirit of youth, is bought by Zampano, a travelling street performer, to join his ‘strong man’ act. When the mismatched pair stumble across a ragtag circus and a daredevil tight-rope walker, Gelsomina finds herself caught between the two men, not knowing which way to turn.
Federico Fellini’s Oscar-winning La Strada is one of the all-time masterpieces of world cinema. Moving between the dazzling lights of the circus and the bare landscapes of rural Italy, this production of La Strada promises a fine theatrical feast for all the senses.
La Strada is directed by Olivier Award nominee Sally Cookson, who is directing a wonderful, vibrant cast from all over the world. As you can see from the photos, the play is truly physical and expressive and aims to deeply connect with its audience.
La Strada boasts an on-stage ensemble providing a beautiful new score by Benji Bower, with songs performed by an international cast of actor musicians. Here, we can see the company in full flow engaging all the senses. We can’t wait to see this production come alive on our stage.
